Wed 10 April - Mon 9 September

Botanic Garden

This year’s theme is ‘Weird and Wonderful in Cambridge University Botanic Garden’, which invites visitors to capture and showcase the Garden’s heritage landscape and diverse plant collection, including rare and endangered plants from all over the world.

Highlights of the Garden include: Glasshouse Range, Bee Borders, Scented Garden, Rising Path and Systematic Beds, Limestone Rock Garden, Lake and Woodland Garden.

The Botanic Garden’s plant collection supports worldwide scientific research and teaching as well as being a source of inspiration for visitors. There is a wide variety of plants and landscapes that entrants can explore for this year’s theme: ‘Weird and Wonderful’ in Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

We hope that these beautiful landscapes, and the plants within them, will inspire some great shots – with 40 acres and a plant collection from all over the world, there is always something wonderful (and weird!) to capture.
